Claimant committed fraud by applying for benefits while employed

The claimant was required to report any and all wages or income from any source during each week he collected benefits. However, there was substantial evidence in the record to support the finding that the claimant knowingly failed to report a material fact to obtain benefits to which he was not lawfully entitled, i.e., that he had obtained employment. Moreover, by completing the Division's online application for benefits, the claimant was on notice that if he was found to be disqualified, he would be liable to replay any overpayment. Thus, the Board's determination was affirmed (Mark Maddox v. UIAB, Del. Super. Ct., New Castle County, No. N16A-09-011 ALR, August 17, 2017).
